These recordings have the air of spontaneous, impromptu performance, a coming together to make music which is one of the hallmarks of the folk music scene. It is as if the recording engineers were allowed to eavesdrop on the music making - and captured frozen improvisations. The variety of sound on these albums is remarkable and the number of instruments and voices involved produces some remarkable programmes. But don't be fooled by the apparent ease - these musicians work hard, rehearsing and arranging behind the scenes (or discreetly working and honing their style during a jam session in a quiet town or country pub). The result is carefully crafted music which honours and past but which, like all living things, moves on and develops. Next time they play and sing the results will be different. The old folk melodies of the British Isles are honoured and respected, are treated as raw material for high quality music making.Folk Music from Scotland presents some of the finest music from the Northernmost part of the British Isles. Songs of nature and dancing predominate, but there are Celtic tales of magic and mystery such as Tam lin, dreamy sounds such as the Mingulary Boat Song and the down to earth humour of Tibby Fowler.PerformersIan GilesIan PageJon BanksJohn SpiersSarah StoweMatthew SpringSharon LindoThe Amber QuartetIan Giles drumPaul Sartin fiddleJohn Spiers melodeonBenji Kirkpatrick bouzoukiDr FaustusPaul Sartin fiddleTim van Eyken guitarRobert Harbron concertinaBenji Kirkpatrick guitarDragonsfire Jon Banks dulcimer & mandolinBen Grove mandolinHilary Perona-Wright guitarNigel Perona-Wright flute & recorderAll arrangements by courtesy of the performers.
